We ran into this last year. It has to do with your PC. If your PC doesn't have the newest stuff to handle the new daylight savings date, then your display will show an incorrect time. However, the job will run at the correct time.
So, not to worry. And get the latest windows service packs on your pc.
There was another problem in 5.3.3 which you have in which the NRT was moved up an hour for some schedules. We pitched a fit, opened a case, and the problem seems to be fixed in 7.6 as we didn't have any problems last weekend.
Did Canada go along with the US change? It is a pain, eh?
Thanks fellow users. I had several jobs fail this week that we had never had a problem with. The only thing I could think of was that the jobs started before the one updating the files completed. Which now makes sense because they run on two different servers. Our AS400 is obviously behind.

The WebFOCUS Client and ReportCaster obtain date/time information from the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), be aware that releases earlier than Java JDK 1.4.2_11 and 1.5.0_06 do not account for daylight savings time changes that began in 2007.
For more details refer to the following links below.
Thanks for all replies and suggestions. Finally the problem is found. As you know, we have the latest JSDK installed, but the problem is found in Report Caster - when we enter 10am, the next run time is showing 11am.
Solution- we have to update the JSDK version in Tomcat Application . Server The credit goes to the IBI helpline consultant.
